Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy Becomes Fastest-Selling Switch Game of 2018

Within days after its launch, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy became 2018's fastest-selling Switch game.

After publisher Sony came up with remastered versions of first three titles from the popular Crash Bandicoot series on PlayStation 4 as Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy a year ago, it made a great comeback to modern consoles. Nintendo decided to introduce a port for this iconic '90s franchise into their next-gen gaming gadget Nintendo Switch a little later, just as they always do. Just as they launched the title on June 29, it became the fastest-selling Switch game of this year.

Although, Nintendo has dominated the video game market last year, they haven't been able to make it large this year yet but that has completely changed when Crash Bandicoot started cashing in some serious buck immediately after Switch debut. Aside from nostalgia factor, players are seriously hooked in for an improved gameplay and better graphics. Reportedly, the game is currently ruling the UK gaming charts and pushed another Nintendo game Mario Tennis Aces from top.

Lately, action-adventure first-person shooter Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus has been ported to Switch and doing considerably well. Despite Wolf 2 being an anticipated title on the portable console, it couldn't keep par with Crash Bandicoot. Xbox One edition of N. Sane Trilogy actually outsold Switch by 250 copies as it also saw release on PC and Xbox. Just as how immensely popular these titles were originally on PlayStation when it came out first, they still are today after two decades.

Since Nintendo have seen a huge drop at their stock prices following E3 2018, the success of N. Sane Trilogy is great news for the company. However, staying on top of gaming charts for long is quite the trick. Not having many upcoming first-party exclusive titles except Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Nintendo is still selling tons of third-party games to remain a dominant force. The publisher has shown that they can still make magic without their flagship series of Mario and Zelda.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy Coming To Nintendo Switch

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy makes its way with remastered versions of classic platform games to Nintendo Switch later this week.

Publisher Activision made a smart move with Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy by adding up remastered versions of first three titles from the popular Crash Bandicoot series that was originally developed by Naughty Dog studio for PlayStation. Nintendo Switch fans can rejoice as this compilation of great platform titles are coming to their next gen console as a port on June 29, 2018. As a PS4 version is already released in 2017, the game is headed to PC and Xbox One at the same time this week.

Back in the 90's, there was only one contender for Nintendo's Mario in the video game market and that was SEGA's Sonic the Hedgehog. Although, Mario still remained the more admired franchise, Sony decided to butt head in the competition by developing Crash Bandicoot platform video game series for PlayStation. The original game was soon followed by sequels Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back and Crash Bandicoot: Warped. However, latter sequels and spin-off release have failed miserably.

After lying dormant for nearly a decade, the series returned to its glory on latest Sony console PS4 last year and the improvement of graphics while staying faithful to original gameplay is definitely noteworthy. The Nintendo Switch version of the game appears to be a lot more fun because you can just carry around your adventures anywhere as you go as the bandicoot hero smashes through obstacles, spin attacks objects, evade enemies like polar bear or other monsters.

Even though Naughty Dog originally created the franchise, Activision hired Vicarious Visions for the remastered collection, which initially sold 2.5 million copies already. Upon making the Switch debut alongside PC and Xbox One, the game will surely bump up their selling point. The success has led to a rumor of a new title being developed for releasing in 2019 as well.

Super Mario Odyssey Hacked With Porn

Pornographic images starts showing up in Super Mario Odyssey to the horror of some Nintendo Switch owners.

Developer/publisher Nintendo is known for their family-friendly video games and they encourage young players to enjoy their titles. However, that is at risk now as hackers have found a way that lets them upload custom avatars of their choosing for their profiles in Super Mario Odyssey and as a result, pornographic images starts showing up in the game, which some of the Nintendo Switch owners have noticed lately and many unchecked children are now at risk of viewing mature content.

While communities of PC, PlayStation and Xbox have some toxicity online, Nintendo games were really setting a bar of standard for everyone else and had an innocent play-field for kids. Not only they follow a very strict policy for taking down any abusive or inappropriate content, those who cheat or quit matches online on a regular basis are also gets the boot. It was a solid ground for players of all ages to experience peaceful gaming together but seems like those days are gone now.

By far, these images have showed up in 3D platformer Super Mario Odyssey and Luigi's Balloon World mini-game that came with a free DLC update this year. Players have to find out hidden balloons all over the world in this mode and upon finding them out; it shows the avatar of the person who hid it. Usually, what we see in those avatars are mostly pictures of Nintendo characters and Miis, but people started discovering unpleasant images that are straight out pornographic content.

A curious user on Reddit has recently posted about what sort of obscene images he came across while playing the game. This normally gets players banned by Nintendo and until they offer better parental controls, he urged all parents to take their child's Switch offline. Apparently, a leaked DevMenu has been causing people to get past these normal protocols of the game, which another Reddit user claimed to get his hands on after buying a Switch this week.

What he thought as a “defective” Switch from eBay was actually an EDEV unit, which is a console for developers. Although his post is deleted now, many have suggested releasing the data online for developers and hackers to study and it eventually uploaded to a torrent. With a custom firmware, installing DevMenu is actually pretty simple but unfortunately, people started to misuse the data already by exposing a huge number of children to the threat of watching NSFW images.

Limbo and Inside Coming to Nintendo Switch

Two of the puzzle-platformer games from recent years by developer Playdead are heading to Nintendo Switch later this month.

Two of the most popular yet underrated puzzle-platformer video games of recent times from Danish developer Playdead are Limbo (2010) and Inside (2016). After conquering every other major gaming platform like iOS, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, these titles are currently available on a few other devices as well. Now, the only place they needed to step on is Nintendo Switch and Playdead is bringing them on Nintendo's next gen console next week, on June 28.

Back in 2010, the developers released Limbo as a black-and-white 2D platformer through Xbox Live Arcade and it has managed to garner positive reviews despite lacking a minimal story background. Because of an impressive sales record, the game was then ported to literally every other modern gaming platform including Android, iOS, Linux and Mac. Then a seven years gap took in before Inside debuted on Xbox One exclusively a week before PC and fellow consoles as its spiritual successor.

The success of the first game made an impact to people's mind about what they are about to get in a follow-up game and Inside was praised even more for creating a compelling platforming experience with improved art, subtle plot and portrayal of a world shrouded in darkness. Inside has toned down the gory parts and delivered a lesser graphic rendition of events. Moving away from its predecessor's solid monochromatic color schemes, it chose to slightly highlight parts of the surrounding.

The Switch release announcement was recently made by Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu on Twitter, which developer Playdead has Retweeted later to confirm.

Following the E3 2018 press conference, list of upcoming Nintendo games announced for Switch is growing exponentially. Amidst the middle of battle royale game Fortnite heading to this console and Mario Tennis Aces releasing a multiplayer demo, ports from Playdead seemed to be forgotten until Famitsu reminded it to everyone. Besides, any of Limbo and Inside were never been ported to any Nintendo hardware and given their history of releasing for every available console, it was only about time they head to Switch.

Catherine: Full Body E3 2018 Trailer

Causing controversy with reveal trailer, Catherine: Full Body E3 2018 trailer seems to have ‘matured’.

Raising eyebrows and questions back in December 2017 upon an announcement for a remake of 2011's puzzle platformer adventure title Catherine, Atlus and Studio Zero has been quiet for some time for their upcoming game Catherine: Full Body for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. E3 2018 brought us so many new reveal of exciting titles from various big-name developers and publishers, which was no exception for Atlus as well and a latest trailer is released for the remake lately.

Since we are way past initial tease, the new E3 trailer focuses more on the story and less on the naughtiness. Still there is some as it is one of the base aspects of this game.

When Full Body was announced and players saw the reveal, everyone learned that there is a third "Catherine" and judged by all the in-game hints came to the conclusion that she is a trans-woman. Although she is not the only trans character in the game, it quickly sparked a lot of criticism from fans and critics. However, Atlus did not clarify that by releasing any official comment and lets it remain as a mystery to find out later. Fortunately, this trailer moves past Rin’s identity.

Already caught in dilemma of having Catherine and Katherine in his life, Vincent Brooks is torn with his feelings and moral decision, where most of the focus of the whole footage was. The love triangle he was tangled in has now become a square now that pianist Rin from the Stray Sheep bar has also fallen for him and it is getting harder keeping track of all these affairs. Then there is characterized sheep, conspiracy, murder, nightmare realm creating a complex puzzle around his life.

Taking note from past backlash, Atlus tactfully avoids the entire topic and tries to intrigue us to this adult adventure by giving glimpses at other features. We think, if there is a twist regarding Rin’s character, it may turn out interesting. The other trans-woman is waitress Erica Anderson from Stray Sheep, where Vincent hangs out with his friends very often. Catherine: Full Body will be released on 2019 America and Europe but we are still missing a specific date.

Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2 Release Date

2018 is going to mark Mega Man’s 30th anniversary and developer/publisher Capcom plans to celebrate this event by releasing their latest installment of the franchise, Mega Man 11. However, we don't need to wait that long and can celebrate our favorite blue robot character Mega Man with Mega Man X game series, because Capcom is bringing Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 & 2, collecting all eight X games of the series for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2 Release Date

Mega Man X Legacy Collection collects Mega Man X, X2, X3 and X4 from the series and Mega Man X Legacy Collection 2 contains X5, X6, X7 and X8. These collections will be available to digitally purchase for only $19.99 each. If you prefer to buy physical copy, then the two discs retail bundle collection will cost you $39.99 only. For Switch, the first collection comes in a cartridge and a digital download voucher will be given for second compilation.

Below is the announce trailer for Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2, briefly showcasing unique history of the series.




The entire action-platformer Mega Man X series is based on a post-apocalyptic setting that we are about to revisit through Legacy Collection 1 & 2. During the 16-bit era of 90's, Mega Man X entered the scene in 1994 to usher an evolution on its own. A classic formula of jumping and shooting through eight different stages with a Maverick boss character at the end to foil a sinister plot by an evil mastermind was established. Mega Man X series has added dashing and wall jumping into the gameplay mix.

Some all-new features are what make legacy collections special and visual upgrade is one of them. Each title has received some graphical smoothing which is optional for players or you can just play as they were in their original resolution. CRT filters for early sprite-based entries and full screen mode to balance the aspect ratio are there with widescreen mode. Mega Man X7 and X8 has their 3D models improved for sharp output as well.

Full soundtracks of the series, brand-new tracks and remixes are all included. One more thing there is to note about these anthologies is that Mega Man Xtreme, Mega Man Xtreme 2 and Mega Man X: Command Mission games are excluded in this set. A 25-minute original video animation titled "The Day of Σ" from Maverick Hunter X, which details origin story of series antagonist Sigma in prior events that laid foundation for X games series.

All-New "X Challenge" Mode

There is a museum full of archived key-arts, notable trailers, toys, trading cards and other cool stuff. Plus, a brand-new "X Challenge" mode is introduced, where Mega Man has to take on two classic Maverick bosses at the same time from different X games. You get to choose a maximum of three weapons into the fight or if you believe yourself as a pro-Maverick hunter then jump in with only a buster for earning your bragging rights. Have you ever wondered if you can defeat both Chill Penguin and Frost Walrus at once? Now you can easily find out.

With releasing of Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2, Capcom finally is giving some recognition to this classic series what was due for decades as they are no longer available on Nintendo 3DS. Whether you picked up early titles of the franchise or came late to pick the newer games, these two collections will suffice.

Super Mario Odyssey Added New Special Outfits

It's been more than five months that Nintendo has released their platformer Super Mario Odyssey for Nintendo Switch. It's easy to get bored for anyone in this long time playing a game with same old costumes and outfits. If that is the case with you then we have good news for you. Two more brand-new costumes have been added to Nintendo Switch in-game shop for the game most recently and one of them might be important for old fans.

One of these outfits is a Satellaview Suit & Helmet and the other being a Baseball Uniform & Batting Helmet. Nintendo has officially announced the news on Twitter with pictures of Mario wearing those attires.

The first outfit is reminiscent to a device that used to let players download games and enjoy them using a satellite connection for Super Nintendo console. The developers launched it for Japan in 1995 but never released this for any foreign marketplace though. Even with the brief little history it had with the company, Nintendo is paying homage by adding that space costume Mario wore in Satellaview’s commercial.

In case if you are wondering, Mario does not look anything athletic like while running and jumping around various levels wearing those baseball uniform at all. You can still dress him up to the uniform of America's national sport as both of them are available right now. Besides, these outfits are also a subtle nod to Nintendo's series of all the Mario Baseball games that came out till day. The striped uniform can be yours for 3000 coins and for another 1500; you can get the batting helmet as well.

Maybe adding these two new outfits are not going to get you excited as a new DLC would have, yet this is something to go back to Super Mario Odyssey for and collect the items as a fan. A while ago, few fans found out these costumes hidden deep beneath the codes within Balloon World update of the game. There was a few more and that means Satellaview Suit and Baseball Uniform are only the start. Costumes like 8-bit Mario hat, Santa outfit and more are just waiting to come out.

Catherine: Full Body First Trailer

Only days after the announcement for 2011's puzzle platformer adventure title Catherine remake as Catherine: Full Body for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, Atlus and Studio Zero have dropped the first trailer for this upcoming project at a livestream on Nico Nico on December 22. The entire clip is mostly filled with small cutscenes and illustrations from the game and so far, no significant change in the gameplay is noticeable yet.

Catherine: Full Body First Trailer

Now witness the first trailer for Catherine: Full Body is released by Atlus and learn more about the rumor of adding a third "Catherine" to the game this time.




The plot of the game revolves around Vincent Brooks who is already troubling with two enormously gorgeous ladies, Catherine and Katherine. The former came to his life when the latter was already there for five years and complicates Vincent's life by having a one night stand with him. That's not the end of the story. Right after this mishap, he discovers himself in a nightmare realm every time he goes to sleep where he constantly struggles to keep up from dying by climbing puzzled tower blocks.

RELATED: Catherine: Full Body Reveals New Catherine

This is something that anyone who played the original title already knows but what makes this remake more interesting is that it adds more to the pile and that starts with bringing another bombshell into the play. The third "Catherine" of the game is named Rin and she is a pianist at the Stray Sheep bar. Beside that nickname, we don't even know her age and how she will impact on the life of a troubled Vincent.

RELATED: Catherine: Full Body Announced for PlayStation 4

However, there is a twist nearing the end of the trailer that has been making buzzes and making some fans angry in advance speculation. After Rin and Vincent get to know each other, they end up in a room and she stands nude in front of him. As he looks at her loins, his eyes go wide and jaws drop in what seems like a shock. Whereas many are speculating that the reaction is of finding out that Rin is a trans-woman, Atlus denied to issue any comment on the subject.

Shock or Comedy?

We think if they can handle Rin being trans-woman well, then it would add more fun to the plot but since the studio already ill-treated another trans character named Erica in the same game, players are skeptical. Though there is no official release date yet, Catherine: Full Body will be released on winter 2018 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
